What is Workers’ Compensation Policy?
Workmen compensation policy is the primary method by which you (as an employer) meet the responsibilities imposed by the worker’s compensation statutes. The policy covers your statutory liability for death or bodily injuries caused to your employees, which arise during employment.
A Workmen’s Compensation policy helps the employer cover his financial liabilities as stated under the Workmen’s Compensation Act, 1923. The policy covers the liability faced when a workman suffers the following consequences –
2. Permanent total disablement
3. Permanent partial disablement
4. Temporary total disablement
Moreover, the legal costs incurred by the employer are also covered under most Workmen’s Compensation plans.
